You Never Know When You Are Being Fashion Forward

Heidi in PJsNote to the editor of the Wall Street Journal Style Section, regarding this week’s piece titled: Fashion’s Latest Command: Pajamas for Daytime:

It’s been DONE.

I was ahead of my time in 2006. Following my instincts, while scandalizing my family, I donned my pink and white stripe-and-fruit-patterned pajamas, rode the Long Island Railroad into Penn Station, and took the subway to Times Square to attend a matinee performance of The Pajama Game, starring Harry Connick, Jr. and Kelli O’Hara. Although it made perfect sense to me, and amused fellow audience members who squealed with delight as I found my seat at the American Airlines Theater, the press didn’t cover my fashion statement. I suppose you have to be Heidi Klum for that kind of coverage.
